recent tips

Treat your fundraisers as professional, collaborative partners and embrace their passion for your mission. Not doing so is disrespectful and counter-productive.

Millennials (& increasingly, Gen-Z) are a valuable donor base. Treat them as such! Don’t fall for the stereotypes that suggest that younger generations are broke, lazy, or have short attention spans. Research shows that they are passionate, engaged, and ready to support causes they believe in.

Use storytelling with words, images, or videos to deeply engage your donors. This emotional connection not only boosts support for your cause but also makes donors feel like an integral part of the solution!
